For those who experience repeated infection to their gums.
For those who experience repeated infection to the gums due to enlarged pockets or other periodontal problems, a more frequent periodontal maintenance program may be necessary. Under this program, patients are usually scheduled for cleanings every three to four months. This is important because the severity of damage caused by infection increases exponentially as it progresses, meaning that the majority of damage can be avoided simply by increasing appointments.
Dr. Choi may perform a deep cleaning to remove any infection below the gum line, take measurements of pocket depth, and perform scaling and root planing to reduce buildup and future infections. If you are experiencing painful, swollen, or bleeding gums, contact our office for more information regarding our periodontal maintenance program.
